Character type: Trader
Appearance: Though he's normally in and out of mud-puddles as much as any other brat, Ransit's parents do draw the line at their kids being dirty at Gathers. A stop at the beach on the way to the Gather meant all the kids could have a good long wash in the sea. Clean, and dressed in clean clothes, the child looks almost respectable, except for that cheeky, rather mischievous grin.
Personality: Any Trader's brat knows that if the child is young and cute enough, and the price is cheap, people will buy anything - even dirt or sticks.
History: Child of a Trader, brought up in a group of caravans, Ransit knew how to handle money long before he could read or write. The brats were allowed to gang together, and while few of them were spoilt, all of them learnt how to make their own money pretty quickly.Going from Gather to Gather where there was plenty to buy does that to you.
